Abstract:

A wind-tunnel investigation was carried out on an oscillating model of the F-5 wing with and without an external store AIM-9J missile. The store was mounted at the wing tip as well as at a pylon underneath the wing. Detailed steady and unsteady pressure distributions were measured over the wing, while on the store aerodynamic loads were obtained. In addition, wind-tunnel wall pressures were recorded. The tests covered the Mach number range between Ma .6 and 1.35 and frequencies up to 40 Hz. This report part I describes the general set-up of the experiments, while the parts II to IV give an analysis of the results. Author
